Sara's Fave Photos Blog

Check out my new book, Flowers of Volunteer Park Conservatory. And welcome to Sara's Fave Photos Blog at Love That Image. My goal is to take a photo that is as compelling and beautiful as in real life, with no or minimal Photoshop work. You may copy a photo but link to lovethatimage.com. Thank you for your thoughtful comments, and thanks for visiting.

Boat garage

Not sure what the real name of this kind of structure is, seen in Florida at the Bonnet House in Ft. Lauderdale, but I call it a boat garage. (Now I’m told it’s a boat house.)

Trailer interior with red

Happy Valentine’s Day! Here is something you don’t see every day. This little trailer and its interior was on display at the Northwest Flower & Garden Show and was shown by Sisters on the Fly, back in the vintage area. You could die from this much cute.
